There was once a beautiful princess who lived in a castle far away.
Every day, the proncess would bring a different prince to her father and ask whether she could marry him.
Every day, her father refused- the princess' taste in boys was appalling. Each day, her father told her "Darling, if you really want a suitable husband, consult the fairies of marriages! They will guide you to the PERFECT prince!!!" and each day the princess replied "thank you, daddy, but could I please have 1 more chance to find the perfect prince myself?" to which the king always sighed and said "of course..." because he loved his daughter very much
One day, every last boy in the kingdom had been rejected by the King, and he was at a complete dead-end. The princess didn't know what to do, and so she ran to her room in tears.
Sobbing, she chanted the mantra to summon the 4 marriage fairies to her room.
"Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue!"
Suddenly, 4 fairies appeared at the foot of her bed. One looked like a kindly grandmother, the next like a baby, the third was wearing items to big or too small for her, and the fourth was wearing an entirely blue outfit. "You called!" they sang.
"Yes." sighed the princess, "I need your help!"
The fairies looked understanding.
"We know what to do!" they smiled "Go North until you get to the mountains, and on the way you will meet your perfect match."
And with that, they disappeared.
Straight away, the princess got up, packed her bags and left to head north.
On the way, she met many handsome princes, but decided on each one that he was not the one for her.
About 10 miles from the very edge of the kingdom, she found a cave. Exhausted, she fell down on the stone floor and went to sleep. When she woke up in the morning, she found that a giant dragon was blocking the entrance to the cave.
At first she thought "oh no!" but then she took a closer look at the dragon. His shiny eyes, his gorgeous tail and his fit bod! "actually..." she smiled.
The princess was never seen again, but there have since been sightings of half-human-half-dragon children flying over the mountains.
And they all lived happily ever after.
